Extraordinary meeting called to discuss Eye homes proposal

Eye Airfield

Eye Airfield

Representatives of a Suffolk town are to hold an extraordinary meeting next week to discuss a proposed housing development that would bring nearly 300 homes to the area.

Eye Town Council will meet at 7.30pm on Wednesday, November 4 to discuss the 280-dwelling development on land on Eye Airfield.

The application, for outline planning permission, would also see the construction of a 60-bed residential care home, the re-provision of a car park for the use of Mulberry Bush Nursery, relocation of existing farm buildings and associated infrastructure.

Of the proposed homes, 183 would be sold on the open market. Ten of the homes would be two-bedroom, 82 would be three-bedroom and 91 homes would have four or more bedrooms.

The remaining 97 homes would be either council homes or affordable housing. It is unknown how many bedrooms the homes would have.
